AN angry motorist has explained how they suspect their neighbour has damaged their new car after doing the same to their old one.

In the post, uploaded to Reddit, user StubbornBr1t is seeking advice on what to do next.

The Reddit user begins: "Hello all, I’ve recently got a new car and my neighbour had damaged my previous one.

"My home space has a red fiesta park next to me and surprise surprise the scratches and dents leave, you guessed it, red paint.

User Affectionate-Emu1374 replied: "Does your home parking have cameras or security? May be worth getting them involved.

"If it’s a small dent I wouldn’t contact insurance really as although it’s not your fault you’d lose your no claims and your policy would go up in price."

While AdAltruistic8513 said: "If you haven't taken photos of the scratches including the corresponding damage/paint evidence on his car, file the claim with your insurer as a NON-fault claim.

"Be aware though, if you're due for renewal soon and are looking to switch, your No claims bonus is temporarily revoked whilst the claim is investigated."
